The OG-US-5000 is a UHD bi-directional Universal Scan Converter/Scaler that has a built-in loop-out of SDI or HDMI, with genlock. It supports both HDMI 2.0 and 12G SDI inputs and outputs.
This card for the popular openGear platform scales any SDI and/or HDMI input resolution to HDMI and SDI with support up to UHD. For example: Broadcast and Professional AV facilities can use this card to distribute HDMI 2.0 UHD signals around the facility by converting them to 12G SDI, genlocked with the rest of the system, while still monitoring the original HDMI 2.0 source.
